History of Gay Activism in Louisville
Since the year 2000, thanks to a declaration from President Clinton, the month of June has been Gay & Lesbian Pride Month. It has a special poignancy this year; this month marks 40 years since the Stonewall Riots – demonstrations against police raids in Greenwich Village that birthed the modern gay rights movement. We’ll spend Friday looking back at the history of gay rights in our own city, to see how things have changed – and how they haven’t – for LGBT Louisvillians. We hope you’ll tune in, and call us with your stories if you’ve been involved in the local gay rights movement.
